Open Choir II
The Open Choir is an exploration of what we consider a forgotten art form, which allows for fluid and active participation by all who attend.
It is a free, open event that questions our assumptions about community, belonging, identity, diversity, cultural appropriation, and performance. This unique, non-sectarian dynamic meeting of people through songs of the African diaspora, carefully led by a trained core group of artists, allows people to come in contact with each other and with themselves through songs, dance, and interaction within a participatory performative context. Participants, coming from different backgrounds, co-create an artwork beyond cultural differences, catalyzing a shared space of meaningful recognition and interaction.
